City seeks more collaboration among anchor institutions

Seeking to harness the power of collaboration among important organizations in the community, the city has spent that past three years working on what they call the Tacoma Anchor Institutions Network.

The effort began in 2016 with a visit to Cleveland by representatives of Tacoma Public Schools and local hospitals. They visited a high school with a focus on preparing students for careers in the medical field. A group visited Cleveland soon after. In 2017, the city hired The Democracy Collaborative to explore a strategy for how such an effort could work in Tacoma.
